Abstract

The office of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at Northwestern University was created to oversee directly and strengthen the quality of instruction administered by the faculty of the Kellogg Graduate School of Management. KGSM Dean Donald P. Jacobs proposed that the office of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs be held for a two-year term on a rotation basis. These records fill twenty-three boxes, and span the years 1965 to 1985. The bulk of the records reflect the two-year rotation schedule established in 1976, in that they incorporate records of Deans Duncan, Kamien, and Jurius, into one body of records.

Arrangement

The records are organized into three broad categories: topical files (arranged alphabetically by subject, and chronologically within each folder ), grants and research (subdivided into seven sections, and is arranged alphabetically within each section), and reading files (arranged chronologically). In the addition, correspondence is divided into four chronologically-arranged categories, and alphabetically-arranged departmental reviews.
